Trident Laser Facility

This user facility provides combination of capabilities for high energy density physics not found elsewhere in the world.


Discovery science with high-energy, laser-light pulses

Several important discoveries and first observations have been made at the Trident Laser Facility, a unique three-beam neodymium-glass laser system for experiments requiring high-energy laser-light pulses.

Trident's one-of-a-kind, long-pulse capabilities have enabled state-of-the-art innovations in laser-launched flyer-plates and other unique loading techniques for material dynamics research.

Experiments at Trident have resulted in more than 300 publications, including numerous papers in high-impact journals such as Physical Review Letters and Nature.
